Rapat’s New Line of Enclosed Conveyors Addresses Recent OSHA Regulations
Capturing dust emissions while performing in the toughest of environments
Rapat Corporation is now offering a full line of enclosed conveyors, including the Rapat Series ECTR, the Rapat Series ETR, and the Rapat Series RR. This lineup of enclosed conveyors will help to eliminate dust emissions. They also provide a solution for industries looking to meet OSHA’s updated regulations regarding silica that were updated in June of this past year.
Perfect for silica sand, the Rapat Series ECTR is an industrial-duty, enclosed-frame conveyor with CEMA troughing and return idlers, which provide increased employee safety, even in the toughest of environments. Features include, tool-less top covers, which can easily be removed, and bolt-on bottom covers for a totally enclosed system and a greater ability to control dust.
The Rapat Series ETR is a totally enclosed-frame conveyor with CEMA troughing idlers and a self-cleaning UHMW slide belt return. The ETR performs in extreme environments to ensure the capture of dust emissions. Also ideal for silica sand and other construction materials, the ETR Series features tool-less top covers and inspection doors, which make for easy maintenance.
With its self-cleaning UHMW slide belt return and external bearing spool idlers, the Rapat Series RR is the optimal solution for moving a wide range of products. Designed to perform in tough environments, the RR series protects the product from weather conditions while capturing dust emissions.
Each system is easily customized and built to meet the needs of each specific application. Whether it’s limestone, cement or silica sand, Rapat will design and build the exact equipment required for the bulk material being handled to ensure that the job gets done right.
“For several years, we’ve produced enclosed-frame conveyor systems for those companies with a vested interest in being good neighbors in their communities or to provide a better work environment for their employees. But now with the new OSHA regulations, companies that need to handle bulk materials must find ways to comply. And we’re working to provide the right systems to match any operation.”
